Show Notes Chapter Markers

Charging your electric vehicle (EV) shouldn't be a guessing game, should it? You're about to glean  insights from Sumit Chauhan of CerebrumX who helps us understand some of EV charging times. He explains why plugging your EV at your convenience might not be the most cost-effective strategy, and how peak load times factor into this equation. Plus, we touch on the $200 registration fee imposed on Texan EV owners to compensate for lost gas tax revenue.

We also get a look into the world of CerebrumX's transformative technology designed to optimize EV charging costs. We discuss the potential repercussions of the looming reversal of electrification and EV subsidies, and how their app interacts with the grid to possibly reduce charging costs through tiered electricity plans. Could smart charging be the answer to easing pressure on our power grids? We also explore the benefits of this innovative app for both residential and enterprise customers. 

Ever wondered why electric company pricing structures seem so convoluted, especially when it comes to EV charging? Let's shed some light on how these models affect you, the consumer, and how CerebrumX is striving to enhance transparency, especially in the credit system for power returned to the grid. We also openly think about the prospect of circumventing the middleman entirely, enabling EV owners to use the power they generate for their own homes.

In our Feature segment, we have a look at the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve 4X4 - a mid-size SUV that has grown into a 3-row vehicle.  It maintains the Jeep off-road chops with a new look that adds luxury styling that many people will find appealing.
